The Holden Coupe 60 is an Australian sports concept by Holden that appears in the Asphalt series and is known by fans as a 2008 Monaro.
The Holden Coupe 60 Concept is a sports coupe developed by Holden in Australia. The Coupe 60 is a pillarless concept car that explores the limits of Holden's current Zeta rear-wheel drive architecture, combining V8 Supercar-inspired styling with innovative technology to form a road-going sportscar. The Coupe 60 is based on a short-wheelbase version of the Holden VE Commodore.
The concept car was first revealed at the 2008 Melbourne International Motor Show, along with the HSV W427. The Coupe 60 celebrates the six decades since Holden built the 48-215 at its Fishermans Bend plant in Port Melbourne, Victoria, and provides a glimpse of Holden's future directions in design, engineering and emerging engine technologies.
At the time of launch, a great deal of speculation ensued that the Coupe 60 may point to another incarnation of the iconic Monaro. The designer stated that the car is production-feasible, including the B-pillarless design.
Nevertheless, the Coupe 60 remained a concept car largely because of unjustified development and production costs relative to small sales volume unless accompanied by any export program. Such program was not feasible especially as General Motors, by that time, was developing the larger volume fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro based on the same Zeta platform shared with the Coupe 60.
The luxury-sports theme of The Coupe 60 is emphasised by such features as a racing-derived chassis setup, including rear-diffuser, front-splitter and carbon-fibre spoiler, and 21-inch centre-lock alloy wheels with unique design Kumho high performance semi-slick tyres.
The Coupe 60 is powered by a 6.0 litre LS2 V8, with Active Fuel Management and ethanol (E85) capabilities. Coupled to the same six-speed manual transmission as in the standard Holden Commodore SS, the powertrain delivers upwards of 275 kW (369 bhp) at 5700 RPM and 540 nm of torque at 4400 rpm.
The Holden Coupe 60 was added in the Monkey's Year Update as a high-end Class B car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1111
- MAX rank: 1491 (+380)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1684 (+193)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +61
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 573
- Upgrade rank percentages: 10/60/10/20
- Nitro Efficiency: 10/15/20
The Holden Coupe 60 is a top speed-oriented car, with acceleration as a middle-tier priority. The Coupe 60's acceleration is noticeably faster than the Lamborghini Estoque and can handle better than most other cars of a similar rank and especially handles much better than the Kepler Motion. The Holden Coupe's drifting is great, but extreme sensitivity may result in oversteering.
However, just like the Koenigsegg Agera R, the Holden Coupe 60's nitro consumption is the fastest in the game. Despite this, the Coupe 60 is capable of beating other cars in its class. In fact, the Agera R and Coupe 60 are extremely similar in total speed and overall performance, only that the latter car is faster.
In terms of Event leaderboard times, the Holden Coupe 60 is either equal to or slightly inferior to/superior over the Mercedes-AMG GT3. In most tracks, the AMG GT3 is a better car to use, but in long and straight tracks like Tokyo the Holden Coupe can beat the AMG GT3 with its emphasis on top speed over nitro.
The Holden Coupe 60 is not featured in Career Mode or any collections.
The Holden Coupe 60 also benefits from being able to be Multiplayer tuned due to its low starting rank of 1111. When upgraded properly, it can challenge other multiplayer favorites such as the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic , Shelby Cobra 427, BMW M2 and in certain tracks, the McLaren MP4/8.
is worth noting that its maximum top speed of 267.8 mph (431.3 km/h) is very close to the total speed of many cars like 599XX and the aforementioned Cobra and Biome, so a proper tuning setup will enable it to outrun even the best accelerating cars in Multiplayer (except for the TRION NEMESIS and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25).
Care should be taken not to tune it beyond 1600+ however as in doing so may put the player in races with high end Class S cars that the Holden cannot compete with. Regardless of how it is tuned, it sometimes can beat the TVR Sagaris (which can be considered as a refined version of the Holden that trades drifting radius for nitro duration), but both the Holden and the Sagaris are ultimately dominated by the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, and as of the Fall Out Boy Update, the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition, which is able to beat the Holden Coupe 60 regardless of the rank.
The Holden Coupe 60 had an original cost of 3,000 but was updated in the Motorcycles Update to require 10 of its Rare-rarity Blueprints to be assembled. Assembling the Holden takes 8 hours but can be skipped for up to 353.
It is the 14th car to be released as a Multiplayer League reward and is part of the Lunar Multiplayer Season on September 28, 2017. Players who finished in the Elite League would get all 10 BPs.
